Give yourself Permission, It’s OK

21 Sep

Ah, the plans I had for today, friends, the plans I had.

I just conceded them to the inevitable and put my yoga pants (no, i don’t actually do yoga in them…) on. I have been trying to psych myself up to go run my errands and do some cleaning around the house but my body decided that a shower was all it could handle.  So I have come to the conclusion once again, that you just have to give yourself permission to not feel good and to do nothing.

If you’ve heard of the spoon theory, made typically in regards to Lupus, this is one of those days where I have started with less ‘spoons’ than normal, and therefore, must alter my plans.

(if you don’t know about this spoon theory, go check out this article)


So, I’m going to continue laying on the couch with my dog snoring close enough I can reach out and scratch her head, with a cozy crocheted blanket over me and try not to notice the mess of my house or remember the list of errands that need doing.

Happy Monday and next post will be more on character development,


~if you want a great show on netflix that is worth binge-watching, over and over : Leverage. Interesting enough to keep you focused on it and not your pain but not too involved that you can’t keep up with it.

    Sometimes you just need those days–whether you’re sick or just feel like having a lazy day.

    We all have days like this and lately I have had one a week! I survey the list of all my TO DO’s and then set it aside.

      Hopefully it’s a good thing! My back is a bit better today, finally, so i’ve been able to combine a lazy day and productive! (i’m setting up my adproval account right now!!!)

    I have seen you get ready for a day of fun and then have to cancel by the time you were ready to leave the house. After reading the Spoon Theory I sympathize with you even more than I have in the past. She sure does know how to explain it so others can “get it”. Save your spoons for the important things.

      isn’t the Spoon Theory so straight forward? I’m glad I ran across it.
